Dewease Wins Another All-Star Feature In Hamilton Motorsports J&J

McKenzie, TN - Lance Dewease showed the kind of consistency that it takes to win championships in this year's annual Florida Speedweeks. Dewease scored three All-Star wins and finished every All-Star feature inside the top ten in the Hamilton Motorsports #77 J&J.

"All things considered, it was a pretty good start for us," stated Dewease. "I certainly would have liked to win the final race, but second was the best we could do. It's a big positive for everyone on this team to come to Florida and start strong. We're still a new team and we know that when we start racing next week in Pennsylvania, that everyone will be ready to go. The car worked great at all three tracks and I know it will be strong at home, too."

Dewease, who already had won a 360 feature at East Bay and two All-Star events in Florida, claimed Thursday night's opener of the 26th annual East Bay Winternationals after rain postponed Wednesday's event to Friday. Dewease took the lead after leader Tim Shaffer crashed and was able to lead the remaining laps. The next day Dewease finished 10th and 8th in two complete programs before chasing Shaffer in Saturday's 50-lap finale. The second place finish ended the Florida Speedweeks for Dewease, and now the team will concentrate their efforts in Pennsylvania with the openers at Lincoln Speedway and Williams Grove Speedway next weekend.

Fred Rahmer was another PA Posse member that showed consistency at East Bay. He drove Joe Harz's #88 J&J to four top ten finishes including a pair of fifth place finishes and two eighth place runs. Mike Woodring was also in the field in Woodring owned #19 J&J, but the defending ESS champion wasn't able to crack the top ten.

New Zealand:

Dean Brindle concluded his season driving a J&J at Western Springs Speedway in Auckland, NZ. Brindle finished third in the New Zealand Title and will sport the #3 NZ next year.
